7:03 am
captioning funded by cbs welcome to "cbs this morning." it's a snowy morning. we haven't seen much of that this winter. a major storm is causing road and flight delays from the dakotas to michigan. >> meantime, another storm is moving up the east coast bringing snow to parts of new england. we begin with susanna song of wbbm tv. susanna, good morning. >> good morning, erica. you can see the snow steadily falling here. this snow is a big deal here in chicago because it's been such a mild winter. since december, we've only seen about 16 inches of snow when an average winter in chicago we usually get about 28.5. now, the this will be a fast-moving storm. it should be over by lunchtime. we're expected to get between 4 and 7 inches of snow. it's already caused some big
7:04 am
problem, though, on o the roadways. the roadways are very slick and slushy. could be treacherous for commuters. it's also caused some destruction for air travelers. there have been about 350 cancellations at o'hare and about 100 cancellations at midway. mostly affecting southwest flights. for people staying home, though, this heavy snow will be good for snowball fight and also to make some nice snowmen. back to you. >> susanna song in chicago. appreciate looking on the bright side. that storm in the midwest is headed east. it could affect tens of millions of people by the weekend. lonnie is here from this morning saturday. >> good morning, everybody. that storm right now in the midwest is actually affecting right now portions of the northeast. we show you some pictures a moment ago from waterbury, connect wekt, with snow falling. that's the same storm stretching out into the midwest. if you look at it on the
7:05 am
satellite and radar picture, i'm talking about a thousand miles worth of a storm. for those of you who live in the snow belt of the country, this is not the biggest storm you've ever seen. but that's one huge system. again, this is all one. who is going to be picking up the most snow? let's pull up the totals map for you. again, it's been pretty much a snow drought this particular winter. but from just south of buffalo, want you to focus on this purple stripe from south of buffalo up into caribou maine. we're talking about 6 inches to a foot of snow out there. these are some towns that really could use that snow because so much of their economy based on the ski season during the winter and it's been a dry season this will help immensely. you heard how chicago is halfway where they should be. let's pull the chicago numbers if we have them. it's not just chicago. you look at any area, like milwaukee. they've picked up 18 inches of snow. so far this year they should have double that. 36.2 would be an average winter by this time for them.
7:06 am
we're way behind average for a good portion of the country. that's a quick look here, guys, at the weather picture. charlie, over to you. >> lonnie, thank you. erica, i'm sorry. >> u.s. european and arab leaders meet today to take on the growing crisis in syria. secretary of state hillary clinton is on her way to that summit in tunisia where they're expected to demand an immediate cease-fire. they bombarded the city of homs again this morning. cbs news clarissa ward is in tripoli. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> what do they expect can come out of this? >> well, i think in the short term, there is clearly a desperate need to deal with this humanitarian crisis in the city of homs which is falling out of control. there's shortages of food, drinking water, electricity. people with serious, serious injuries have no access to proper medical care.
7:07 am
in the short term, everybody is really hoping for some kind of a temporary cease-fire to be pushed through so that aid can be brought in and so that the wounded can be taken out of the hardest hit areas. >> is the assad regime prepared for a cease-fire? >> it's impossible to know exactly what's going on in the minds of the assad regime. certainly, i think the russians will have a very strong role to play in any kind of cease-fire negotiation. they're one of the few countries in the world that seem to really have the assad regime here. it will be very important in all this. >> clarissa, there have been stronger statements from the diplomatic community as well. nicolas sarkozy talking about the journalists killed saying they were targeted and those who did it will have to pay for it. how do statements like that add to the pressure on the regime? will it help? >> there's no question that the international outcry over the deaths of journalist marie colvin and recommend i 'ol chick
7:08 am
is incredibly embarrassing to the syrian regime. the regime's response was to say they had nothing to o do with the shelling of that makeshift media center. they deny that the journalists were targeted in any way. the three western journalists injured in the attack, they ask them to present themselves to authorities so they can get the proper accreditation to be reporting in syria. at this stage, efforts still ongoing to try to get the western journalists injured out of homs and out of the country. the french ambassador expected to arrive in damascus today to push the negotiations toward. >> clarissa, what is going on behind you? >> there are 15,000 syrian refugees currently living in lebanon. you can see behind me a small grouping of them. they've taken to the square today to protest the atrocities that are going on inside syria. they want the international community and they want especially those leaders in tunis to pay a teng and do
7:09 am
something to help with this desperation situation. >> colllarissa ward, stay safe. we're covering afghanistan. the top u.s. general there asking for calm after violent protests over the burning of islamic holy books. in kabul this morning, however, demonstrators are marching on the presidential palace. mandy clark is in kabul this morning. mandy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. there are shous of protesters across afghanistan taking to the streets and demanding blood. in kabul and elsewhere, they're chanting death to america. most of the protests are happening outside u.s. military bases. this was always expected to be the largest and most passionate protest of the week after friday prayers. but so far we haven't seen the violence that was expected. there were riot police who were out on the streets early and at times they outnumbered the protesters. general john allen a nato
7:10 am
commander in afghanistan also asked the afghan people for patience and restraint saying that the investigation into the koran burning is pushing ahead. >> the word from the nato commander. in terms of afghans on the ground, we've heard about calls to attack. what about calls to a draw down the demonstrations? >> reporter: well, yesterday there was a meegt of religious leaders in kabul. although they are outraged about the burning of the quran they did not encourage the people to protest out of fear that extremist groups would hijack the protests for their own purposes. >> what exactly, mandy, do the protesters want? do they have a set of demands or is this simply a protest against american presidents and what they consider lack of respect for their religion? >> there's a wide variety of demands. largely they want the people who
7:11 am
burned the book, even though it was an accident, they want a public trial and they want to see that justice has been done. they want a feeling that americans are respecting islam. some are just outraged and they're just voicing their anger. but really, they want to feel like they're equals with americans. >> mandy clark in kabul. thank you. here in the united states, afghanistan is suddenly a campaign issue again. because of a presidential apology. >> senior white house correspondent bill plante is with us. good morning, bill. >> good morning, charlie. that apology was part of a communication from president obama to president karzai on several different subjects. according to the white house. and it probably never would have become public if president karzai hadn't announced it. now the apology was for american troops, of course, burning qurans in the largest u.s. air base in afghanistan. >> i think this is an astonishing day. >> newt gingrich was fired up over the president's decision to formally apologize for the quran
7:12 am
burning in afghanistan. >> there seems to be nothing that radicalists can do to get barack obama's attention in a negative way. >> news that two u.s. troops had been killed in retaliation. >> the president apologized for the burning, but i haven't seen the president demand that the government of afghanistan apologize for the killing of two young americans. >> the white house view from spokesman jay carney, an apology was important because what happened put u.s. troops in danger. carney also pointed out that president george w. bush's administration a pol swriezed in a similar situation. gingrich larkd out after the president gave a speech in florida about his plan to lower gas prices. >> other step is a silver bullet. it won't bring down gas prices tomorrow. >> gingrich took aim. >> president of the united states explains first of all that there's no single silver bullet. that's just wrong.
7:13 am
defeating obama is a single thing that would change -- >> house speaker john boehner's spokesman brendan buck weighed in on the president's drilling. >> the obama administration in 2010 had the lowest number of on shore leases issued since 1984. the president hit back, accusing republicans of politicizing high gas prices during an election year. >> only in politics do people root for bad news. do they greet bad news so enthusiastically. you pay more, they're licking their chops. >> now, that was the president's first major speech on gas prices since they started going up. and you can expect more in days to come. charlie? >> bill, the question remains, if there's no silver bullet, what can the president do to impact prices down now and a november election? >> the short answer is tamp down expectations. but the white house official answer is a three-part program. you consume less, you drill
7:14 am
more. and you develop alternative energy sources. they are very concerned about -- around here about how this could affect the general feeling of improvement and goodwill that seems to surround the president at the moment. they're very aware that other things may come up, unemployment numbers may go up and they have the sense that things are going the president's way now, but that they may not continue to do so. >> they're nervous. bill, thank you so much. an armed carjacking in los angeles ended in a wild shoot out. the suspect raced through the streets of hollywood last night eventually turning into a gas station where it pulled up next to a customer pumping gas. >> whoa, whoa, whoa. a traffic helicopter watched as police opened fire on the carjacker. the suspect was killed. the customer who was pumping gas, escaped uninjured. >> this morning an alabama father who waited eight years for justice in the death of his daughter is still waiting.
7:15 am
as mark strassmann reports, the man was suddenly set free on thursday halfway through his trial. >> gabe watson had reason for relief. an alabama judge had acquitted the so-called honeymoon killer of murder charges and the drowning of his newlywed wife tina as he scuba dived in 2003. >> we all wanted justice, we wanted the court to hear what little information was presented and the judge determined that it wasn't enough. >> watson's defense lawyers never put on a case. judge tommy nail said they failed to prove he killed his 26-year-old bride to cash in on her $33,000 life insurance policy. >> the camera -- >> prosecutors had accused watson of drowning tina by cutting off her oxygen supply and showed this chilling photo of her lifeless body in court. >> the eyewitness testified he saw watson trying to save his
7:16 am
wife. >> obviously we're very disappointed. >> the dead woman's father who testified yesterday insisted his son-in-law got away with murder. >> seems to be a lot more protection for the accused than there does consideration for the victim, which in this case is tina. >> i'm the most sad for cindy and tom who will every day for the rest of their lives live with the fact that they've lost their daughter. every day. you don't get over that. >> i don't know what to say. this is the fifth judge that came to the conclusion that gabe did nothing intentionally to harm his wife. i'm thrilled for gabe. i hope everybody can begin to heal. >> watson served 18 months in an australian prison for manslaughter, faced life in prison if convicted in alabama. but he left court a free man and has a new wife. for "cbs this morning," i'm mark strassmann in atlanta. it is now time to show you some of the headlines from around the globe.

8:02 am
with different eyes knowing that the people were actual navy seals. that made the movie even more fascinating to me. it's my understanding it didn't start out that way. you were trying do a documentary. >> started out into app exploration, what would it look like to tell the story. once we were led inside and connected with this amazing brotherhood of man, we started about their sacrifice, ten years of sustained combat deployment. not only on themselves but their families and their wives. who felt like the only way to honor them was do it for real. casting the real guys, using real ammunition, based on real acts of valor have have gone down in the years past. >> it says the seals, how obama used to use his secret weapon. tell us about the seals. what makes them either special, different, successful. >> you really have to look at this brotherhood of men that will never quit. there's something inside the men that motivates them to never quit. it has them rise above every
8:03 am
everybody else in this country. what's so amazing about them, they've been doing it without recognition. just for the man to the left, for the man to the right. >> were they reluctant actors? >> they all turned us down when we started. we're not hollywood dudes or actors. as we started to work together, we became great friends and they trusted this would be in their voice and be accurate and authentic to their community, that's when they came on board. >> john, what's the worry that there may be in movies like this and the katherine bigelow movie, how serious, how deep, the disclosure in. >> there have been a number of critics, including the 85-year-old former leader of the green berets who say black operations, military special operations need to remain black. for all the glory and the success, what they do and how they do it should stay undercover. in the course of this film, i mean, this has, because the film is so incredibly realistic and there's something called ttp's.
8:04 am
tactics, techniques and procedures. that's what you do and how exactly you do it. tlts there's a lot of ttps in this movie that are dead on and the concern is if an adversary screened this four times, they'd have a good idea who is coming at them. there's a strong argument on the other side of that. >> which is what, just simply that people ought to know shall be able to tell the stories? >> that's one of them. which is this is a $10 billion investment in special forces involving 66,000 people. the budget is actually larger than that. the american public deserves to see what they're getting for that. there's a vetting process also. >> you had to have a vetting process. >> what's important to know is that all the operational planning on the migs was done by the seals themselves. they were on the set every day making sure that nothing was being given away. the navy had a full scrub on the film for technique, tactic and procedure. the last thing anybody wanted to do is give the playbook away. we're not doing that. we respect what is classified
8:05 am
and i think everybody should respect what is classified. >> as a layperson, when i was watching it, i said gosh, they're giving a lot away. john, did you feel that? >> i wasn't feeling as much that they gave it away. i was literally on the edge of my seat for the whole two hours. i was sit there saying, that's real, that's real. they did it exactly the way it is done. operationally in real life. there's an argument that if you go on the internet and you look up what is a halo jump and dynamic entry, that you can find it piece by piece and this is -- the other argument, of course, if you're the adversary and you see this movie and you kidnap somebody and you're in a hideout, you're not going to sleep that night knowing they're out there that have these capabilities. >> you have an idea, some of the things that were most touching to me were the family scenes. you see these guys with their wives and their children. there was one line in the movie that struck me where he's going off and he says bye baby when he knows he may or may not be coming back. they said we hope the family
8:06 am
understands. they may not totally get it, but they hope that they understand. why was it so important to include the family aspect? i was glad you did. >> i think the wives are the true heroes. the men are going off and doing fantastic things for our country but the wives are holding down the families, holding the homefront together during this long combat deployment and it's truly miraculous what they go through and keep it together. there's a lot to be said for that. >> john, what's your conclusion as to disclosure of too much or not too much? >> my conclusion is pace based on my conversations yesterday with navy seals. i asked a few of them and to a person, they said i understand the concern, it's a real concern. but if the navy special ops people sat down and vetted this movie, it's okay with them, that's okay with us. >> the questions have been answered for them. >> yeah. >> what do you want us to get out of it? >> i hope the country truly appreciates what the men and women in uniform are doing and first responders for that matter. people doing courageous acts of
8:07 am
valor every day. people really sort of give them the recognition they deserve. >> the president has mentioned them in the state of the union also. >> i would say mission accomplished. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> i made it up. >> thank you all. john and mike, thanks for acts of valor. it opens in theaters nationwide. you can see for yourself what we're talk good morning. it is a very mild wet day start. temperatures in the upper 40s right now. here is first warning doppler weather radar. we have been watching shower activity march across the area since the middle of the night and will be with us through the day. the forecast intense later, 3:00 a big spring like scenario is going to set up as this cold front slams into 74 degrees, thunderstorms likely and it is going to get very windy through charlie and i were saying

8:19 am
coastal department. i forget the exact name of it. so they could study it. the department of resources there. they decided to release rocky back into the wild. which is good. being a person in high school and college, my job was to kill lobsters at the restaurant i worked at, thank you fishtail. 27 pounds will be tough. if you lived that long, let rocky keep going. >> i'm stuck on the image of you killing a lobster. >> i threw them in the steam pot. >> erica hill a murderer. >> that's a joke. the airlines will never tell you this. there are three hours in every day where you have the best chance of taking off on time. that's one of the five things airlines don't want us to know. peter greenberg appears to reveal all of them. we love these five things segment. number one here is that the airlines can actually kick us off a plane at will. >> it's in their contract. if you don't dress properly, let's get you a definition of that. or you smell they can throw you
8:20 am
off the plane. it's actually written in their contract about offensive bodily odor and dress code. what's the dress code. every airline enforces it differently. you come along with flipflops they let you on a plane. >> you had to dress up for the airlines. that's no longer the case. the big thing is turning off your electronic devices. does it or does it not interfere? >> that's number two. it does not. the reason i know this is because the faa has done this for years, research tells you that none of the electronic devices affects any of the a on ix in the dock pot but the faa allowed them to use ipads at distances of three feet from the equipment. having said that, the rules are still the rules. alec baldwin, notwithstanding, if they tell you to turn it off, turn it off. >> you don't want to be the one to test that either. >> you shouldn't be worried that your blackberry is going to crash the plane. >> best time to fly between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. >> see, airlines want to be
8:21 am
competitive on schedule. they're not competitive on reality. a runway in best weather, the best weather conditions possible can only accommodate 30 takeoffs an hour if you allow for two minutes of separation between takeoffs. why are the airlines allowed to schedule 44 at 8:00 in the morning. if you're on the 44th, bring a copy of war and peace. you'll be reading it. either go out at 6:00 or between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. most airport in the united states between those times, you can go bowling on the runway. >> i thought it was the weather delays, which is frustrating when you're traveling and it's good weather there and you're still delayed. >> it's not. a little captain skippy plane, the commuter planes take up as much gate space and radar space as a 747. the new thing is preferred seats. which is frustrating to me. preferred seats used to be stuff we get for free. now they're preferred. which means what? and not always worth the price. >> the airlines are generating
8:22 am
revenue for everything. they're trying to sell you seats earlier. they're advertising that. get to the bins faster. a preferred seat by the airlines definition is any seat closer to first class. that means you can smell the cookies, you still can't have one. the biggest problem with the preferred seats is the center seats are advertised as preferred seats. >> a middle seat is preferred -- >> a middle seat closer to first class is a premium seat. i don't think so. >> i am not paying extra for that one. >> finally, we should never rely on the departure board at the airport are you saying they're not giving us correct information? >> the definitions of the words on time means scheduled to leave on time. guess what? that's never happened. the point is, it's never happened. departure boards have not told the truth for 50 years. >> good to know. >> look at the departure board to see the gate you're supposed to leave from and nothing else on the departure. look at the arrivals board and see what's coming into that gate. if there's nothing coming in
8:23 am
until next tuesday, why would you go to that gate? >> it's frustrating and get on time and it's delayed two hours. >> down to something called the tail number of the airplane. >> we got to go, peter. >> you want to be on time? >> we'll be back. >> we want to be on time, yeah.,
